We are all enjoying this camping vacation

However we are home now. I had started this post several days ago.

Sadly the internet was sparse, actually you might say non existent. I was able to use my iPhone hotspot to post that last post but then there was nothing. Disappointing as I was ready to publish this post.

Only five nights away but it is a whole different world from being home.  The girls love it. They love people watching and most of the time they are not barking other than low volume noise which is allowed ( by me ). Several different walks everyday.  We are are having a good time and keep forgetting to take photos. Some training is working and some it not.  The bells are not working as there is no place close to the stairs.  Tying them to the hand rail puts them out of reach for the girls to nudge. I haven’t given up.

There actually is a Lambly ( Bear ) Creek which is a very active creek that runs into Lake Okanagan.

We found a trail that runs mostly along the creek, if you can’t see the creek you can hear it.

Near where it runs into the lake. You can barely see the patch of white just to the left of Colin’s shoulders.

It is one of the unique camping sites here in the park.  Most are dry camping, there are seven, perhaps eight full hook up sites with 50 amp and roughly 48  –  30 amp electric only sites, most of which were recently converted from dry camping sites. We were in one of those 30 amp sites. However this particular spot is a perfect dry camping site complete a running creek and your own beach. Kokanee do spawn here in the fall.

Another special site, you can see that the rvers have moved their chairs to enjoy the lake view.

There are so many wonderful places to camp here at Bear Creek. However being a provincial campground you can only book exactly two months ahead and there is very stiff competition for sites here, any site. We lucked out getting out site but almost didn’t.

There is a beach to the left of the park that appears to be open to everyone including off leash dogs.

Our girls loved it.  No doubt that they will be enjoying the Isla beach.

They so loved all the new experiences and activities that they kept coming up ( day after day ) to us to give us huge kisses as a thank you. They would run ahead and turn around and jump up to kiss us. They loved all the various sniffs in the park.


They all look so happy.

Looking back towards the park.

The girls became braver and soon were running ( not just standing ) at the edge of the water. At one point a boat went past and the resulting waves frightened the girls.

A busy beach area in front of the RV sites.

Lots of quiet relaxation.

We saw snow fall!! Actually it was the Cottonwood trees.

The fluff was everywhere and now it is in my house.

Colin had found a large box of very dry wood under the house and brought it along.

I don’t think that we have had campfire for at least 20 years.  That wood has been hauled around a bit.

So we had hot dogs for lunch one day!! So very yummy. You can see the buns, condiments onions, etc behind me on the picnic table. Of course I had wine my special lunch.

There are more photos to share on the next post. Be sure to check back soon.

Going to have to try this method of cutting toe nails.

    Contessa – Thanks for the laugh on the other post about the “safety aspects” of the dash. I find it interesting how people in North America just have to tell others what to do, how to do, when to do, and what NOT to do, etc. It would be so much of a nicer life if people would jut mind their own business and keep their mouths shut and let people live and enjoy their life on their own terms.

    I do this those baby girls of yours will LOVE MEXICO and that beach… I can’t wait to see them down there.

    Enjoy the summer…
